. chairman paul ryan has worked hard with the budget committee to outline the kind of reforms we would put in place to bring real fiscal responsibility here in washington. and the american people understand that you can't continue to spend money that you don't have. it's time for us to come to a plan that will, in fact, balance the budget over the next 10 years. it's our commitment to the american people and we hope the senate will do their budget as they should have done over the last four years. >> good evening. as the speaker said, our conference will look to vote on a measure tomorrow that will temporarily extend the debt ceiling so that we can see the senate actually begin to do its job. for several years now, i think it's about four, the senate has not passed a budget. and all we're saying is, if the president and the senate -- if this country needs to incur more debt, senate, please show us your plan to repay that debt. please show us your plan to control spending. it's about time that we come together, do our work, the american people expect no less. that's why we'll insist on the
huffington post" -- ryan grimm joins us. you write that the senate modestly occurred filibuster's. essentially, what did they agree to? caller: what they agreed to is something, a series of steps that will quicken the pace of legislation in the senate. there has been a battle raging for the last couple of years over how they would rewrite the rules of the senate this chamber. there were two separate objectives that slightly overlap. one is that progressive senators wanted a higher quality of legislation, it wanted more progressive legislation to be able to get through, and a requirement of getting 60 votes rather than a simple majority was standing in the way. for somebody like majority leader harry reid -- harry reid, it was the volume of legislation. he thought the chamber was too backed up by the number of bills. under the current system, it could take an entire week to get legislation through, even if it had a near majority support, because of all the different rules involving 30 hours a post- cloture time, and intervening day, another cloture vote, and a cloture vote before
with the majority of voters? >> i think they can. i think they have. the rubios and the ryans and the cruzes are more connected to where people really live. i'm not saying this president is unattractive and people want to continue watching believe that he could unite, but at every turn, he does not unite. he does divide. we're going backwards in the sense of we're identifying by our color and our gender and our income and our region. and it's just -- i would argue that the democrats have moved away from the mainstream way more than the republicans have. and i keep coming back to the state argument. they will -- we are coming up on a midterm. we have a number of democrats that have won in states. the majority of them that mitt romney won by double digitses. with the possible exception of north carolina. those democrats that are in the senate, the senate's not done its job. the house republicans have passed a budget. the senate has not passed a budget since obamacare was passed. those senate democrats that were just elected like heidi heitkamp or claire mccaskill, they're not going to support
did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know i just can't do that any more. thank you very much. >> thank you very much. in defense of me asking you three or four as it were to come up here, i'm delighted that we did this now rather than waiting until the very end because, mr. ryan, i don't even know -- and you don't have to respond to this -- but i don't know what day we have to have it ready. and so i viewed that as committee chairman, speaking with each other, including our republican leadership, that we were trying to do the correct thing and to make sure the administration read us as clear. this is not a poison pill. this would be something that the senate would have to agree to and public comments out of the senate by senate democrats have indicated the willingness to accept it. >> right. that's one of the reasons we are doing it now because we don't want to bring it to brinksmanship. the statement of administration policies, snap, we use acronyms around here, we don't know
in urban areas, which definitely gave president obama the big margin to win this race. >> both paul ryan and mitt romney were outspoken about blaming their loss in november on a democratic coalition of women, minorities, and young people in this country. days after the election paul ryan saw a problem with the system. >> there's always an electoral college strategy in winning these things. and you know what states you need to win to get to 270 electoral votes. and when we watch the -- look at the map here, virginia and ohio coming in, and those ones coming in as tight as they were and then looking like we were going to lose them, that was when it game pretty clear to us we weren't going to win. >> paying attention now? now republicans have a new electoral strategy. win as many electoral votes as you can, even if you lose by a very large margin. rnc chair reince priebus announced his intention to pursue the virginia model nationally. and it would have quite an effect. this is the result of the 2012 presidential election. barack obama won 332 electoral votes, beating mitt romney's 206 vote
for life in this nation. i want to introduce to you this young man, ryan bomberger, of the radiance foundation. ryan, come join us. god bless you. you know, before the rally, there were some wonderful sparks up on the big screen. ryan was responsible for a lot of that. >> how does it feel to be pro- life? yeah. exactly. it might be 20 degrees, but it has not put out this fire. let me just tell you it breaks my heart to see and snow -- k now, that planned parenthood crushes purpose 1000 times a day. 300,000 human lives are extinguished under the guise of choice. my amazing wife bethany and i started the radiance foundation and launched an initiative called too many aborted.com. -- toomanyaborted.com. the answer, actually, is that one is too many. can i get an amen? there you go. my biological mom had the and exploitable courage to go through nine months of eight somatic pregnancy. -- a traumatic pregnancy. when the purposes emblazoned on on our hearts at the moment of conception. the circumstance does not matter. [applause] my biological mom went through nine months, but she chose
the gentleman representing the ways and means committee, mr. ryan, who's also -- paul ryan, chairman of the house budget committee, in testimony said that he intended to make sure that he would produce a bill exactly supporting what we are trying to do here today and would bring that to the floor as would be faithful in doing that. look, maybe people are upset that we're putting their pay at risk. maybe people are upset because it wasn't their idea, but the bottom line is is that paul ryan, john boehner, eric cantor, the rules committee yesterday said we think it's a good bill and we were joined bihari reid, the senate majority -- joined by harry reid, the senate majority leader. when the senate majority leader agrees with the house republican leadership and join with them in trying to make sure that we get our job done, i think that's a rare day. i think that's a good day when we can work together, when we can bring legislation that the senate openly welcomes and might i add, the president of the united states, president obama would sign this legislation. and he said so in the stat
happens very quickly. chris, thanks very much. ryan smith served as a u.s. marine infantry man in iraq. he raised questions about women on the front lines. he's joining us now along with first-term congresswoman tulsey who served in combat in iraq as well. thank to both of you for joining us. and thanks for your service to the united states. what you wrote in "the wall street journal," yes, a woman is as capable as a man as pulling a trigger but our goal of our nation's war is to fight and win wars. s has the government considered whether introducing women into the above-described situation would have made my unit more or less combat effective? congresswoman, you served in iraq. respond to what ryan just wrote. >> i think this is what is going to be the biggest challenge now that the policy change has been announced, which is getting folks to understand in reality what has already been happening. the contributions that women in uniform have been making in combat settings, the hardships that they have been dealing with. >> ryan, why do you have such strong feelings that women can't be capab
republican vice president nominee paul ryan. he talks about the future of the republican party. representative ryan spoke saturday at a conference hosted by the national review institute. this is about 25 minutes. >> all right, ladies and gentlemen, we are about to hear from our next speaker who is congressman paul ryan. [applause] when congressman ryan was picked as mitt romney's running mate last year, he became a subject of fascination. everything about him, extending even to his workout routine which is the p90x workout routine. and for those of you who aren't fit enough to have a workout routine, it sounds like it's some advanced piece of military weaponry -- [laughter] or if you happen not to work out an hour every day before breakfast, the p90x, from what i understand, involves this whole theory is you confuse your muscles, as they call it, by constantly trying a new and different workout every day. and we have evidence that paul ryan is very loyal to this workout regime because, actually, his most innovative workout has been caught on tape and broadcast very broadly. i'
battle budget. >> when you look at the options out there, president obama's budget proposal and paul ryan's offer, they both don't do what guys say need to be done. now you have a proposal that said you will balance the budget in years. i asked paul ryan this and i can't get an answer. how? it's going to hurt. >> there new base lines in the budget. as we know, some of the difficulty and the differences in washington were centered around the method of accounting whether it's static or dynamic. when you raise taxes, that $650 billion of additional tacks that went in because of the cliff deal, that adjusts the base line. that is going to make the numbers look differently. right? we will have to make choices. no question about it. we have committed to putting a budget out there that will bring it to balance within years. >> the fact is nobody seems to want to own up to a budget that will hurt. >> the ryan budget, the last didn't balance in almost 30 years. the way we were trying to move said look. like in most in the private sector, we want to transition from a defined benefit scenario to a d
-term extension to give each chamber to go through order and pass a budget in our house. obviously, paul ryan and his team will work through, i think even a bolder budget to send to the senate. the senate and the president might not accept the bill we passed. but in fact, they are going to pass the bill and the president is going to sign it. as speaker boehner said, this is something the house should continue to do. we are in the opposition but we're in the majority but as the opposition we should take the opportunity to paint bold principles and stand by those and then we can campaign on those in the next two years. >> so, tom, you are a conservative. did you become conservative at some point, are you a natural born conservative? >> right from the beginning. i grew up in a very small town. my parents were not political at all. my father would not put up a yard sign until my campaign, thankfully, he did not want to offend the opponent. >> a good neighbor. >> so i had a conservative up bringing in terms of morals but not really what you would call a political upbringing. i did not think much a
of hand make a big mistake. we he heard from one of those hunters, congressman paul ryan this morning. >> let's go beyond just this debate and let's make sure we get deeper. what's our policy on mental illness? what's going on in our culture that produces this kind of thing and i hope we just don't skip that and bring out political ideas that recycle failed policies of the past. >> ryan's republican colleagues marcia blackburn suggested today banning assault weapons will not prevent mass murder. >> doing a so-called assault weapons ban is going after a symptom and as teachers have said to me, don't focus on whatever is the weapon. get to the root cause. >> senator feinstein said today she doesn't expect a vote on her proposed gun control legislation for a while. gregg? >> gregg: peter doocy in washington. peter, thanks. >> well, new reaction today to the pentagon's decision to lift the ban on women in combat, which could open up thousands of front line military positions as soon as this year. some critics of the policy though they say that the mixing of genders on the battlefield is a
. reporter: paul ryan, we are told, is working on a budget plan that would balance within 10 years. it is expected that patty murray's idea of the budget will be quite different. but the bottom line is a lot of people who say we need the budget with this debt of $16 trillion are going, will be glad to get to the table and work on an actual budget speech you we will see how it turns out. mike emanuel, thank you very much be one a fox news weather alert. extreme winter weather is gripping parts of the south. arctic air and freezing rain expected from arkansas to the north carolina and south carolina area. dangerous driving conditions. up to a quarter inch of ice can accumulate. people in the upper midwest and northeast are wondering when the cold will end. another day of bone chilling temperatures. we have our meteorologist here with the update. thanks for joining us, janice dean. reporter: that's right, cool air as far as the midsouth. ice on the roadways, the tennessee river valley, look at all that pink on the radar. it looks pretty, but it's not nice to drive in. north of that ar
'ven been in the majority. the ryan plan laid out how to deal with our biggest problems, debt and deficit and ongoing spending, if we don't reform, we'll end up bankrupting this country and it's unfair to the generation not to stop this. it's time for the senate to step up and i've done my town meetings, sean, people say, well you who did they get away with that, what's the penalty? if it were me in my job i'd get fire. do they get their pay docked? i think the notion of no budget, no pay makes a lot of sense and people want to weigh in go to nrcc.org website and make their views heard. >> sean: and by the way, we're watching, the first lady and president obama and the second ball of the evening and a few less balls than in 2009 and give the president a lot of credit. i did not dance at my own wedding i can't dance, i don't like to dance and they look nice together. all right. why are you laughing at that, congressman? no reason to mock-- >> i'm sorry, i'm just picturing you dancing to jennifer hudson. >> sean: i love jennifer hudson. i would love to be at the party. everybody is taping,
beyonce to turn around and talk to paul ryan i can hardly stand it. you just saw beyonce and debbie stabenow that might be the best couple of the day. oh, please. >> i think she is delightful. she really is delightful. i'll tell you. very self-aware. >> you can imagine she doesn't sing the national anthem every day. i mean, this was an unusual assignment for her in this venue, and this is the last thing you want to make a mistake on, and professionally you want to be right on top of your game, so i would imagine she probably felt a little extra pressure there today. >> i have always thought it was a measure of the civic ambition of us as a democracy that we made our national anthem so hard to sing. >> it's a great picture there. >> you know what i'm saying? >> the rotunda there. let's bring in michael steel, the former chairman of the republican party and our pal here at msnbc who is willing to talk to me even when other republicans won't. mr. chairman, i have to ask you, not just about the speech specifically, but about this day and the president has taken pains to say this is abou
know, very brave ambassadors like ryan crocker, one of our very best, who it would be difficult to say, ryan, you can't go do this even though you decided you should do it. what we're trying to do is create a more ongoing discussion between our ambassadors, our bureaus back in the state department who are regional experts, and our security people so that at the very least no ambassador is taking an unnecessary risk, however that is defined. >> with regard to ambassador stevens, certainly it was brave of him to go to benghazi on the date he did. i have to ask you honestly, though, was there anything in his itinerary on the 10th or 11th that required his personal presence? >> he certainly thought so, congressman he did, of course, discuss this with his own security people. we do have regional security officers in these posts. they are the ones that an ambassador will turn. to he believes it was important for him to go to benghazi, there were a number of meetings that he was holding and some public events that he had on his schedule and you know, he was someone who really believed strongl
